The education specialists within the Evoke team truly understand how to help schools improve their communications experience in line with government guidelines.
School Line from Evoke Telecom is a range of telephony solutions that provides schools with more effective methods of communicating within the school and extended school community. At Evoke we focus on improving student outcomes and enabling schools to have access to technology that transforms the way people teach and learn.
Some of the benefits of our School Line telephony solutions include:
Callers will be able to talk to the right person the first time they call. They will also have the option to leave a message, improving parent and teacher interaction and record sensitive conversations for future reference if required. Many of our schools have also set up an absence reporting line and use Auto Attendant at peak times so office staff can be left to deal with parents, pupil's and offer support face to face. Our School Line systems can be programmed to the exact specification of each school.
Parents can be notified of any events, incidents or important information such as an emergency school closure through SMS or via recorded messages. Some of our schools have set up information lines so if you want to have details about particular school activities, this is a handy way to communicate them.
With Broadband Telephony, teachers can now provide additional homework or coaching support to their students. Our schools sometimes call this a 'Homework Hotline'. Similarly with Broadband technology, teachers have the ability to work from home or at an off-site location whilst still having the same technology and contactability as in school.
An efficient and confidential facility for dealing with school bullying via a dedicated DDI (direct dial in) number which is pointed at a dedicated mailbox on the phone system. All messages on this mailbox can be treated as confidential.
The UK telecoms industry is reporting a growing trend of PBX hacking (phreaking) allowing organised crime to dial in and out of phone systems – they then sell this access on in the form of cheap calling cards. Hackers target PBXs out of working hours when they know no-one is there to monitor line usage. Schools and other educational establishments are particularly susceptible due to long holidays and predictable opening times. Evoke Telecom is able to offer cost effective solutions to protect your school against this type of crime.
Our School Line systems are easy to adopt, integrate, manage and utilise.
Furthermore, our School Line solutions have inbuilt emergency features that allow staff or pupils to get help should they need it. For example, you can customise phones with an 'emergency' key; on pressing this, the call will ring at any number of locations on the school property which could include reception, the admin office, security hut or anyone listed in the emergency call group.
Disaster recovery features offer alternative routing for calls into the school to mobiles or another site should there be any problems.
Evoke Telecom have helped many schools save money on their lines, calls, mobiles and telephone systems and many schools feel with better communication, this has reduced stress and allowed increased focus on more important tasks of the day
